In the spotlight today is BABU: the musical conscience of Boulder based producer/DJ, Amr Jan. Originally from Ann Arbor, Michigan, Amr began playing the drums at the ripe old age of 11 and throughout the years picked up piano, guitar, and bass. He grew up listening to the likes of Steely Dan, Rage Against the Machine, Armin Van Buuren, and everything in between. He says that Muse’s integration of pop, rock, and classical music, paired with interesting synthesizers, and heavy guitar riffs was his greatest source of inspiration for musical creativity, which ultimately led him to experimenting with electronic music. His appreciation of music from all genres has set him apart from the crowd. Pulling aspects and motifs from a myriad of genres; Amr has honed in on and refined his production style, creating a unique sound. Amr is a producer that you should keep your eyes peeled for in the music industry. Make sure to check out his debut single Truck Thumpin’ and keep an eye out for BABU’s next big drop.
If you want to catch BABU live, come check him out at Unity Night on June 3rd at Cervantes’ Masterpiece & The Other Side.
